Everyone around the NFL isn’t really sure what’s happening in Indianapolis right now, but surprisingly, the St. Louis Rams are absolutely pounding the Indianapolis Colts inside Lucas Oil Stadium, 28-0 in the first half.

Well to explain this somewhat, for starters, rookie all-everything threat Tavon Austin is having himself the break out game of his young career. He’s looking like the Tavon Austin we all expected to see coming out of West Virginia and the one that fantasy football owners were salivating over.

Already in this game, Austin took a punt back 98 yards to the house early in the second quarter, showcasing that world class speed that makes him who he is.

He then decided to follow that up by really putting a dagger in the Colts’ heart in the first half by hauling in this 57-yard TD pass from quarterback Kellen Clemens just a few minutes later, to give the Rams those 28:

 

This is either setting up the greatest Andrew Luck comeback of all time, or the Rams have finally clicked.
